The Valley Kecord, Ashland,
of August 4th, comes to this
office a 24-page illustrated edi
tion, printed on good paper and
containing: about 100 cuts of
local' business houses, street
scenes, mountain views, and a
fine map of - Jackson county.
Descriptive matter is well put
up, and as an advertisement of
industrial conditions and oppor
tunities in about Ashland the
edition is very creditable.

COUNCIL IS AWAKE
That the city council proposes
to protect the people of this city
in their improvements is eviden
' ted by the refusal to permit' a
certain cement walk contractor
to lay any more walk. A num
ber of walks laid in this city in
recent months are very poorly
constructed and already are un
sightly. The work is of the
''slip-shod" kind and gives evi
dence that it will not long with
stand the elements or usage.
The officials called the attention
of the contractor to his unsatis
factory work and finally refused
to grant him a permit to lay any
This is exactly as it should be.
Any man taking contracts at such
a price that he can net do a first-
class piece of work should be put
out of business before he fails,
. and the few people who are will
ing to put up with cheap, low
grade wonc, in order to save a
penny temporarily, should be
forced to meet a standard that is
acceptable. The whole people
are interested in these cement
walks and no individual property
owner nas a ngnt to put in a
cheap and worthless walk.
It is the intent of the counci
to revise the specifications for
cement walk, and to employ a
supervisor who will give all his
time to seeing that the specifica
tions are carried out strictly.
This will enable the people to get
the worth of their money and
Will result in sightly walks. Be
it said to the -credit of some of
the contractors they are now lay
ing some very fine walks.

of the days when cattle and other
animals were permitted to roam
the streets, and were a necessity.

A costly house, a yard foun

whole lot of money, m is not
wholly essential in making an
attractive residence property.
The average run of people are
ever pleased to look at elegant
p.operties,sbut will more often
bestow warmest praise on 'the
ess pretentious place well-kept,

mansions," but where lawns,

Take W. H. Savage's place at
the corner of 8th . and Jackson.
The house there isa two-story
structure not" built in the pre
vailing style, but the property is
good to look at. Anyone pass
ing would notice the place ;i par
ticularly. and y exclaim within
nimseit : i ms man . has an ene-
getic wife filled with pride, or a
man wno taices Keen delignt m
his surroundings." Mr. Savage
has two lots there and those two
lots are not covered with "tal
uncut." At the rear are three
or four apple trees, and in front
tnere is a chestnut and an orna
mental tree or two, but most of
the lawn is left open and is cared
for properly. There isn't much
blue grass there, but the lawn is
trimmed well, and always about
the edges. Ivy climbs the south
side of the house, and very fine
roses blossom on each side.
Pansies and sweet pea beds are
beautiful because never neglect
ed. And Savage has the right
idea about the hedge fence.
His residence is set far back and
the hedge is kept trimmed low
and is never ragged, so that the
structure as viewed by the ...pas
serby has a setting- of green
lawn , that is absolutely necessary
to the best appearance of any
house. If every residence prop
erty in the city, large or small,
out-of -style or up-to-date, were
kept as the. Savage property, the
property value of the city would
increase a third or a half within
a year. Corvallis would be more
beautiful than any city on the
coast and it could be made thatT
Mr. Savage's property does not
cost him much money and he
doesn't work . at it before day
light; he does get out after six
o'clock and he attends to " the
work regularly, assisted by the
excellent wife who likes to keep
her flowers in shape. But it's
work they enjoy and work- all
would enjoy, if they ; got at
it It's work that will add to
the life and pleasure of any in
dividual. And, by the way, Mr.
Savage takes his scythe and
occasionally cuts the weeds off
the sides of the streets about
his property. , .
The five-masted schooner Elvira
Ball, abandoned last February
off Cape Henry and owned by
the Gilbert Transportion Com'

harbor at Fayal, Western Islands

The report of the Ball's safety
